What’s on my 2017 Christmas list

’tis the season y’all! In our family our holiday wishlists are a serious endeavor: due before Thanksgiving via email and including all relevant item descriptors, cost, source, size, color.

You can’t help but laugh because this process is so our family in a nutshell: a bunch of OCD WASPs

Every year I relish the process to think of what little (or big) luxuries I’d like to spiff up my mundane winter existence. I throw on the holly borders, Grumpy Cat holiday memes and go all out, as much as Microsoft Word will allow. It challenges me to scour my favorite internet shops & boutiques and think about both what I would want and what I might need. Here are my picks this year and some of my favorite sources for gifting for yourself or others!
